Biographical notes: AZUBAH (HANDY) CASH (1820-94) accompanied her husband Capt. William Cash aboard the Nantucket whaleship Columbia on a four-year voyage in search of whales, beginning in 1850. The Columbia left Edgartown in October of that year and returned to Nantucket in May of 1854. Traveling with her husband and their ten-year-old son Alexander, Azubah, who was thirty years old at the time, chronicles their life at sea in her journal, now a part of the Nantucket Historical Association’s manuscript collection.
